    That item is not being sold by Tracfone. You have to give the seller your phone number and the seller uses some unknown method to add the units/days to your phone.

    If Tracfone suspects fraud by the seller, then TF will remove the airtime and you will have paid $90 for Zero airtime.

    It's your decision. The seller is in Honduras.

    thank you for your warning。

    So, to pay ~$125 on Tracfone website is most easy and straightforward way, you will receive a "pin #" to add to your service,

    or trying the luck of ~$60 ebay BYOD sim card deal through online chat.

    Take a look at the promo codes on Turk Forums . It has many pages but the recent codes are always in post #1. There's a code for $15 OFF the $125 card.

    any other cheaper way ?
    Buy a phone bundle from Tracfone, HSN or QVC for cheap, sign up for rewards using Hpham’s referral code, get 8000 rewards points (if referral goes thru) after 60 days and then move the minutes/text/data to your phone, sell or give away the cheap phone.

    Buying a TracFone bundle on eBay in their store for about 60 bucks or more and then activating it with your current service so that you get the Year's service from your new phone plus whatever you have left over from your old phone is about the cheapest way to do it. The new phone should be eligible to be unlocked in 60 days and after it's unlocked you can do anything you want with the service on the phone including moving it to another phone you like better.

    The other way that is very inexpensive compared to buying $125 card is to buy any eligible airtime card and add the 49.99 years extension. The years extension should show up in the add on options when you add the airtime card to the shopping cart at the TracFone website. It's not guaranteed that the years service extension will show up in the add-on options but I've gotten it to show up by adding a $5 text message add on to the cart at TracFone's website.

    With that method you get the whole Year's extension plus whatever airtime you chose to put on it. After that you just add whatever airtime you need as you go along. Add on minutes for call time and text messages are one of the cheapest ways to add extra minutes if you already have a Year's service.

    Sock puppet reviews mean less than nothing.

    So I've decided to play with fire and bought service extension from ebay. We'll see in several days if it works.
    Will I be able to buy service extension directly from TF after service end date?

    Each purchase of service from Tracfone is independent of what was done previously. You can buy the next service through any of the available avenues.

    Should be fine. I purchased service extensions from a similar seller and had no problem.

    If you're asking about the 365-day add-on (no bucket units) for $49.99, it's only offered to TF-sold phones.
